Dutch to raise minimum age for prostitutes to 21

Dutch to raise minimum age for prostitutes to 21: "Dutch government said yesterday it plans to raise the legal minimum age for prostitution to 21 from 18 as part of stricter permit rules for brothels and registration requirements for prostitutes.
Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin has sent the proposal to Parliament as an addition to legislation which updates the law regulating prostitution and sex businesses. “People at the age of 21 can make a better judgment about working as a prostitute than 18 year olds; also they are better equipped to deal and negotiate with clients,” the Ministry of Justice said in a statement.
Prostitution was legalised in the Netherlands in 2000 but authorities have toughened their stance on the business in recent years to fight organised crime and clean up inner city areas."
